    Default Tucson 2020

    Hello friends,
    I couldn't find any posts on the 2020 Tucson Gem Show. Who's going?? Any pearl expeditions to be aware? I always love meeting new friends and, of course, seeing old friends.
    I have meeting up with Jersey Pearl the last couple of years for many adventures.
    Where are you all going to be?

    Yes, I'm definitely going!! The CPAA pearl party is on Wednesday evening, and I'll definitely be attending this year. If anyone is interested in a pearl dinner, I'd be more than happy to make a reservation somewhere (no host). We can raise a glass for Caitlin.

    I am so sad that Tucson isn't happening this year....of course that makes complete and perfect sense, but I will miss seeing my pearly friends. While many of the vendors have been offering virtual viewings, it really is something special to visit in person. I always enjoy the CPAA booth, the Betty Sue King and Elizabeth Strack lectures, and of course visiting with Sarah (Kojima). But I think most of all, I will miss my annual romp with Judi McCormick out to the Gem Mall/Holidome Show.

    You are not the only one
    I spoke with Antoinette Matlins just a couple of days ago. She told me there were rumors of a "smaller" Tucson Gem Show to be held for a couple of days in March, she told me it was only AGTA. Then I got this message from her today:
    "I just read that JCK show is being "postponed" from June to later in the year... so it seems clear that Tucson will not be happening, and it looks like the shows in Vegas in late May/early June will also NOT take place!"

    Yes, I saw that the Vegas shows are now scheduled for August.

    This pandemic surtainely has changed a lot. Some things can be done online of course. But the effects on people, the economies world wide and probably the environment as well will be seen long after the virus is not gone exactly but maybe subdued. In sweden many small stores and big chains has had to close. Things you thought was great business, like restaurants and the travel section struggles. And other business thrives. And so many people losing their jobs. I read a swedish report that those that have lost their jobs during the pandemic mostly get other jobs fairly quickly but those those that were unemployed before the pandemic struggles more. There have been such shifts that I could never have imagined. Here people are starting cooking more themselves than before. Ordering food online, the online food section has developed to levels they thought would perhaps happen years from now. There is also an big outdoors trend, even in the winter they baroque outside, go for hikes and what not. It's a strange world for sure.

    Yes, it is a strange world. Felt like plucking out my old, old copy of "Stranger in a Strange Land" by Robert Heinlein to reread and -perhaps- feel like it is not "that strange world 'tis".
    Eric Braunwert of Columbia GemHouse will be hosting a "Virtual Tucson Gems Show Booth", all adorned with Tucson motifs (he asked me to send him a giant saguaro...kidding), so maybe this is momentary alternative.

    A few of the vendors are doing these virtual presentations. While I love the idea of working with Columbia Gem House this way (I may have recently purchased a small hoard of Sea of Cortez mabes) there is nothing that can compare to the excitement of selecting your stones and pearls in person. Playing with colors and options is one of my favorite things to do, and Dennis, you were always so indulgent in helping me select your pearls to go with my aquaprase.
